Yummy yummy yummy

Imagine fresh fish, austin chic atmosphere wrapped up with a world class menu. Prices are expensive, the food is so good it's worth it. There are many fresh daily specials and one of the few places to get bluefin tuna when possible. Expect a 1-2 hour wait and a large check.

We order the Chef's tasting menu each year for our anniversary dinner. It's a 10 course menu for two that always surprises and never disappoints. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is electric but what raises the tasting menu experience is service to match. Each dish is surprising and possibly a little intimidating but the wait staff does an... More

Food Porn were filming when we got there so that was a good sign. Excellent service and I tried things that I would not have tried before. We had an 8 course chefs choice meal. Great choice!!

Best waitress ever, best service ever, best food ever. Mandy gets the gold medal for going above and beyond. Never have we felt more welcome, so well taken care of, or so connected with a server. Highly recommended.

If you want a magic date night - go to Uchi (and go during the happy hour). All the food is amazing - the salmon is the best I've ever had, and service is great.

Always nice to see the owner and all his staff hard at work in the kitchen and front of the house...food as always superb, we were there for Friday happy hour, tasting the many delicious selections on the HH menu. Our server was friendly and attentive, the only reason for the four star was, as the restaurant got crowded, the... More

A cornerstone of the Austin restaurant scene. This adventure in contemporary japanese cuisine/artistry is nestled in a 50s bungalow style house on South Lamar. Austin architect Michael Hsu designed it to be the perfect functional space for a sushi house while maintaining the authentic Austin home's shell. Chef Tyson Cole keeps his classic japanese cuisine training close while creativity flows... More

We were surprised by how remarkable this food was and how great the service was. By far the best sushi ever. Met Tyson the owner who made our night by... More
